I know she will be glowing and radiant! This is just what I need before a long work week ahead.

(Go Ennis!!)

Wow, I'm happy that she's able to attend this engagement even for a little while. Will watch.

I would imagine she will hand out the award to Lord Coe who is being honoured with a lifetime achievement award which he richly deserves. The whole ceremony looks to be a wonderful event as there has been so much for British Sport to celebrate over the last 12 months. I'm so pleased the Duchess will be able to share in the occasion.

I'm thrilled to hear she's doing well enough to attend an engagement. I'd assumed she wouldn't be doing that for a while, so this is a lovely surprise.

James Pearce ‏@Pearcesport Woops. Just said to @sebcoe how great it was that Duchess of Cambridge was presenting his #BBCSPOTY lifetime award. He had no idea!

Zara's there apparently

Also wanted to say PA will be taking pictures from inside. I dunno if we'll get any from when she arrives but for sure when she presents

I always love this show, and I loved it when Zara won the award a few years ago. Nice to see Catherine attending and glad she feels well enough to give out an award. Poor girl must be feeling awful. When I feel sick the last thing I want to do is put on a posh frock, get my hair and make-up done and smile to a lot of people. I know it's not exactly hard work, but when one feels ill it's hard to do anything.

This is a good answer to the accusation that the Duchess is "lazy." She could have stayed home tonight because of her sickness, but she's getting dressed and polished up to present an award. She's a very determined lady.

I share your sentiments.

That was just media meanness. The Duchess has never seemed the least bit lazy to me and as you say, today proves it! I am an expert, I am the Queen of Lazy!

If Kate is attending the last part of the show, she should be there shortly after 9pm which is in 20 minutes or so.

I agree. I am impressed she is coming at all. But, Kate has always struck me as a trooper.

I hope there are photos of Catherine as well as the BBC video. The show is quite good actually although the presenters aren't the best hahaha

Since the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award is discussed here, just thought to post a bit of heads up: Zara is currently on the stage as representative of the Equestrian Team. She call her taking part in the games in London a massive honour and said the experience was just incredible.
